Scalea, Calabria, Italy

Scalea

Cities and Towns in Calabria

Scalea has played an important role in Italy's history as both the stomping grounds of Latin philosophers and as a Byzantine port, where merchants from around the world came to trade their goods. 
 
Today, Scalea offers visitors a journey through time to that of the Byzantinian empire and to Magna Graecia.
 
The area in effect is a treasure trove of historical monuments from the Byzantine castle located at the height of Scalea's historical centre, to the "Talao" guarding post built by Turks on the sea.  All of the historical monuments and museums in Scalea are free of charge and travelers can explore them at leisure.

In addition to numerous monuments, make sure to ask about the whereabouts of the Byzantine mosaics, which visitors may have trouble locating by themselves.  Few travellers to Italy have ever seen the likes of these mosaics, but for those who have been privledged to see them leave with their mouths agape. 
 
In addition to the fascinating historical monuments and architecture, Scalea also offers visitors hundreds of acres of deserted beaches kissed by aqua marine waters, grottos, mountains, a hot climate and a proud and hospitable culture with an outstanding cuisine consisting of a variety of Calabrese seafood, pasta and meat dishes.  
 
 
Inland jaunts from Scalea to the surrounding mountain towns like Verbicaro and Orsomarso, will leave many people with the sense that they're not just visiting history - they are living it.

Client Testimonials

I have traveled to Italy 2x with the IVS for my own pleasure trips and 2x for business with IVS. These guys really pay attention and make your trip go like clockwork. Italy is nuts, just saying! There are so many rules and restrictions now, so we did not want to drive ourselves. Having traveled with them many times and done business on several occasions, most definitely USE this company. They know what they are talking about. They will save you not only MONEY but also time. Please contact me personally if you do not believe this. I am happy to tell you first hand that this company truly is awesome and will make your experience in Italy unforgettable - in a good way, of course!
